On October 14, St. Anthony School celebrated the opening of their brand new school yard. Their (much greener) new yard is thanks to their grassroots campaign that led to them winning the 2015 Asphalt to Oasis Aviva Community Fund of $100,000. In going from brown to green and from asphalt to oasis, St. Anthony’s new school yard now features an outdoor amphitheatre/classroom and an abundance of trees. Mayor Jim Watson, OCSB Chair Elaine McMahon, OCSB Associate Director of Education Tom D’Amico, and OCSB Superintendent of Continuing and Community Education Peter Atkinson all attended the event, along with many others. It was truly an occasion for celebration – the new school yard will be a learning oasis for generations of students to come.
